The effect of nitrogen nutrition on bitter pit in apples



The effect of nitrogen nutrition on bitter pit in apples



Communications in Soil Science and Plant Analysis 10(1/2): 401-415



In a three-year container experiment with Cox's Orange Pippin/M 9 in sand culture, the influence of continuous and seasonally varied ammonium and nitrate nutrition on fruit mineral content and on the incidence of bitter pit was investigated. During the entire growing season, all trees received an equal N supply (9 mM/l). Part of the trees was given only nitrate or only ammonium; another part was given nitrate and ammonium simultaneously.
